A predictive method for the titled flows based on the Prandtl energy method was developed and assessed by comparing predicted results with experimental results. For constant-density flows, both gross properties such as spreading rate and maximum turbulent kinetic energy and detailed properties such as mean shear stress distributions are shown to be well predicted. For variable-density flows, considerable attention is devoted to the inclusion in the analysis of the added effect of pressure fluctuations and of the variation in the several extant empirical parameters on the turbulent kinetic energy. It is found that a variation with Mach number of the characteristic Reynolds number for turbulent transport is needed to account for the observed decrease in spreading rate. The predictions which result from these considerations are compared with the limited experimental data presently available for the two crucial cases: compressible adiabatic mixing and low-speed isothermal mixing of two dissimilar gases.
